Rajasthan's star player, Shimron Hetmyer, has left the team bio-bubble to attend the birth of his first child in Guyana. Hetmyer will return to the camp soon, while he may miss some of the games owing to the quarantine protocols.

The Rajasthan's official Twitter handle posted a video to make the announcement of him leaving the camp. "Shimron Hetmyer has travelled back to Guyana early morning today for the imminent birth of his first child, but he’ll be back soon," read the caption.

Meanwhile, the southpaw has been a brilliant player for the men in pink and blue. Playing as the finisher in the team, he has scored 291 runs in 11 games. He also has an average of 72.25 and has a strike rate of 166. Even in the last game, he made a significant contribution to the team's victory. The 25-year old played a cameo of 31 runs in 16 balls helping his team chase down the target of 190 set by the Punjab. He hit three fours and two sixes in his innings.

The Rajasthan team has been brilliant this season. Having won seven out of their 11 games, they currently stand third in the points table. The team has gotten contributions from almost all of their players, and they look like a very settled side. Jos Buttler and Yuzvendra Chahal have been the backbones of the team. They currently hold the orange and the purple cap, respectively.

The inaugural champions have three games left in the league stages this season. Against Delhi on the 11th of May, against Lucknow on the 15th of May, and against Chennai on the 20th of May. While they have a solid chance of making the playoffs, they would like to make the most of their remaining games.
